@Salvidian & Mickeyryn: You've gotta have reasoning along with your vote for it to count.

Originality isn't a good field for in-depth reasoning? Oh well.

Willie Nelson was able to create a more unique sound by staying away from the mainstream sound of his time.

I'll let your vote slide this time, but in the future, you need more reasoning.

I don't mind being more descriptive... just kinda lazy

Hands down to both artists, true musical icons, but if I were to choose one over the other it would have to be Cash. The depressing music in combination with his signature deep voice really struck interest with me. He made depressing music upbeat, with titles like "Man In Black", "Get Rhythm", and the poor story of "A Boy Name Sue"

I'm not really a fan of this kind of songs but I'd vote for Willy Nelson because of his rendition of You we're always on my mind, that's a classic for me.

Nelson is cool and all but Cash is a legend above legends so I think you know my choice

Cash has a much better voice and the songs are classics for a reason. My vote goes to Cash.

Although both bands have their extremely high points, and their rather low... Maiden would be my vote. I for one do love my fair share of Judas Priest, but Maiden is my all time favorite metal band. I've seen them twice, and those count for 2 of the 3 concerts I've been to.

I also like my metal to be heavy, and in my opinion, Maiden is more heavy than Judas Priest. Bruce Dickinson is as close as it gets to a metal god as well. Maiden is one of the first great metal bands, coming to fame around 1978, and they are credited for so many other bands influences. Granted, that Judas Priest is as well.

I also enjoy Dave Murray's guitar work more than anyone else on the planet (although Eddie Van Halen is a very close 2nd). I think that when Bruce Dickinson came back to the band in 1999, it revived their fame and broadly widened their audience. All the older folks had introduced their kids to Iron Maiden, because they had been revived. I've grown up with Iron Maiden in the household (considering I'm 16) and I've always preferred them over most metal bands anyways.

Thirdly, I think that Maiden has always had a better discography than Judas Priest. Even though Maiden has a total of 15 studio albums, and Judas Priest has 16 and another one on the way, Maiden will always have albums that were better put together.

One thing that Maiden has a huge advantage in this though, is being much more mainstream than Judas Priest, so naturally, I think that Maiden would be a more likeable band anyways.

Keep in mind, that this is all my opinion

Anyways, my vote stands for Iron Maiden, Up The Irons!

These two bands are quite similar, this is heavy rock, in the same period. But I give my vote to Judas Priest, cause this is the band I've more listened between those and they more focus on music than scenic performance (as is doing Iron Maiden).

Why on earth did I agree on this battle?!?! This is too hard a choice!! (O.o)

Well, let's see... seen both bands live and they both were awesome stage performers. Both had some great gimmicks and stage props and they both were all about pleasing the crowd. 1-1 =)

Both bands emerged at the very beginning of the Metal era and helped lay the vast foundations for future (now present) bands to build their repertoire on and continue the Metal legacy. 1-1 =)

Both bands were part of the famous and awesome "N.W.O.B.H.M.", a branch of the Metal tree I have always favored over other others, simply because they spawned great bands, proven by these two competitors. 1-1 =)

Both bands have a spirited, vocally gifted and show-loving front man... 1-1

Both have outstanding musicians playing Metal music the way it was intended... 1-1

Both bands have continued (with a few years hiatus here and there) touring throughout their entire career... 1-1

Both bands stayed true to their chosen path of music and style... 1-1

Hmmm... geeesh... ARE there any differences between the two? =/

Oh! Wait! Albums! Let's see... total albums, studio, live and compilations are...
Iron Maiden: 33 - Judas Priest: 29

Aaargghh... still not decisive enough, too close... *grump*

Well, then... it all... comes down to the one single band I have listened too most all those years and that band is Iron Maiden! Even though I have had my fair share of awesome Judas Priest songs, I have to admit that I managed to listen to (at least) 1 Iron Maiden almost every other 2 weeks for decades now. Yep... that's it, Iron Maiden gets my vote! Up the Irons!

And since I'm voting here anyway, I'll throw in a score count as well!
